Querying Animal Lovers: Are We Crazy?
I’ve got a question for you animal lovers:
What’s the most ridiculous accommodation you’ve made for your dog or cat?
I know we regularly do things like:
- letting them sit on papers we’re reading
- feeding them first even when we’re starving
- turning their favorite tv show on when we leave the house
… but I just called my ex to see if he’d drive over to retrieve my laptop power cord from 30 feet away where I sat with favorite kitty sleeping on my lap. I didn’t want to disturb Elvis, but didn’t hesitate to inconvenience my ex. (Beau is out of town.)
Actually, I don’t know if that’s my ridiculous thing or my ex’s, because he did it! And then he took my dog for a walk while he was at it. (It is the cat he gave me for Christmas, and the dog we raised together, so we do have close ties … but still!)
As I thought about it, I realized that may not even be the most ridiculous accommodation I’ve made for an animal!
And I suspect I’m not alone …
Did you ever break up with someone because they didn’t treat your dog right? Or skip a vacation because you didn’t want to leave the cats alone? Or take a job because it allowed lunch time potty breaks?
I’d like to hear to what lengths you’ve gone to in an effort to give your furry loved ones the best life possible.
You are allowed to post anonymously if that helps. lol
And why is it that deliberate creators seem to have extra special love for animals and nature? Surely that’s not coincidence?
Or is it just that law of attraction brings me animal loving manifesters, and there isn’t really any correlation between the two?
Would love to hear from you on this one!
